It doesn't have the icon's of Sydney but strip those away and Sydney begins to look dated and tired. Melbourne as a city excels in proviging it's residents with a generally pleasant place to live and shows far more sign of improving itself that most other cities I have visited around the work with an unrelenting building programme. It is fine city with a huge amount to offer. It's a shame so many visitors simply make it only as far as Sydney when per square mile Melbourne and Victoria have more to offer and please you with than most other states.
It's refreshing to find a book that makes an attempt to encourage visitors to make the effort to spend time in this city. However, I believe the book as with most travel guide books is simply not marketed towards locals who no doubt should already know what lies on their doorstep. The book is mildly over rated, the city is'nt!
